NEIGHBORHOOD REVITALIZATION TAX CREDIT PROGRAM

The Neighborhood Revitalization Tax Credit Program (NRTC) provides business entities an 80 percent tax credit for funds provided to nonprofit entities carrying out comprehensive revitalization plans.

The funds must be used by the eligible organizations for projects and activities that will implement the goals and strategies of the approved neighborhood plan. The maximum amount per application is $985,000.
